There are some really good, cheap rates on cruise lines right now. We took my mom on a cruise many years ago, and got her out snorkeling every port stop, she loved it!

I am assuming this means South Dakota. In football terms, it stands for San Diego.

Deep water class then on to aqua chi, feeling washed out & ready for an early bed.

A friend of mine posted a pic on FB--she looked great (she probably weighed close to 350 lb before). I emailed her and asked her for her secret (she's hypothyroid and has been battling her weight for years). She switched her main meal to BREAKFAST, omitted sugar, white flour, rice, bread. It took her 10 months to drop the 75 lb, BUT she has not gained any of the weight back (she is stuck, has been for 5 or 6 months now) BUT she has not gained the weight back. She did add exercise to her routine, BUT she claims she is convinced eating her big meal in the morning. specifically her main meal with protein, was the key because she has always been active (does agility with her dogs and teaches agility classes, etc.) and eliminating sugar, pasta, and bread made the difference.

Just thought I'd share. She had lost weight in the past but always gained it back. Now that she has changed how she eats (not dieting, just a change in her habits), she has lost weight. And yes, she has a family so she has had to make adjustments there as well.

When I was single, I ate breakfast every day and lunch, but rarely dinner. I didn't like preparing a meal for just me and I always seemed to make too much. I would just have a healthy snack in the evening. I stayed thin. Then along comes DH, whose main meal is dinner. Screwed me all up!

As you all may recall, I don't weigh myself. However, today after my mammo I figured I deserved some retail therapy. My summer clothes all are too big, so I thought I might pick up something at Value Village since it was 50% off day. I got a very nice pair of white capri pants, size SIX, and another pair of G. Beene floral capri pants size 8. I haven't worn a size 5/6 since I was 21. They both make me look thin and washed up nicely. I have my annual physical on April 9th. I'll find out how much weight I've lost then (although, I face backwards and don't look at the scale, but since dieting, er, modifying eating habits is a topic my doc and I discuss, I'm sure it will come up, or, more accurately, down).

Hopefully you're exchanging fat for muscle, which weighs more.

Hope you are right! I feel good, just wish that darn scale would go down.
